360-7.6 Payment for services or supplies.
(a) For most services, rates of payment are established pursuant to section 367-a of the Social Services Law. They are contained in Subchapter E of this Title and the department's Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) Provider Manuals. Copies of the manuals may be obtained by writing Computer Sciences Corporation, Health and Administrative Services Division, 800 North Pearl St., Albany, New York 12204.
